So much to say in this one.....Here goes....
Thanks to everyone who has told us how much they enjoyed the previous blog "Sharing is Fun" it seems you all LOVED the LINK...more WILL be coming your way - just keep following the blog !!
Just take a little looksey at this..

Isn't it just the cutest little BUTTON TREE you ever did see.... and it's all THANKS to the wonderful MHAIRI who now lives up in Bonnie Scotland. She's used the Scallop Circle Punch as a base for the buttons, threaded wire through the buttons and made that the stem as well. Popped it all into a little green pot, added some paper strips and VOILA!!! You can see it in all it's glory at the shop NOW along side the card she made us - that's just DELICIOUS (there's a hint), she's truly inspirational, YAY for MHAIRI xxxx
For the last few weeks now we've been adding more and more and more stock to the website, Yay! I hear you out of towners cry!! Nina's been busy, busy, busy adding, adding, adding. In fact she's adding the Brand New Buzz and Bloom today - oh boy you're gonna love this, it's just gorgeous!!
The first of our two Mega Card Making Days took place on Sunday and I just want to say a great big THANK YOU to all the lovely ladies who were there, aside from thinking "Oh my we're never going to finish before midnight" it turned out to be right on time and a brilliant day was had by all - hope you all enjoyed your little gift! and yes I am hearing you when you say you want MORE of the SAME - In fact keep an eye out for the end of June when we've got something similar planned with Bev the Founder of BANANA FROG - more details to follow soon - real soon!!!
I can't believe how quick the stock is turning around in the shop, it seems the Invisibles may soon be "Invisible" so hurry down and see what that's all about. It's become a full time job just keeping an eye on stock control and ordering - hence why I need time to freeze - just for a little while so I can have a play with all the new stuff :)
The Design Team Call is under way - don't worry you still have a couple of weeks to get your entries in - I'm at home today designing some New Stamps for that reason. So I'd better make a cup of tea (with biccie) and get designing.

I feel very privileged to have been asked to design some cards using the fabulous Oakhouse Studio Products. Not only does she have some great stamps, ink pads and accessories but she also sells some amazing dyes that are so versatile, I love them !!! You have to check out her pipettes!!
Here's the first one of the three I designed.... You can check it out on her blog HERE, along with instructions...
I'll post the other two in the next couple of weeks ....
Enjoy xxxx


When it's a dress, of course !!!!
Here I've created a little bit of art using the fabulous JOFY stamps from PaperArtsy.
There's nothing not to like about these stamps, then again that goes for all of Jo's designs, simple yet effective and versatile.... See, they're not just for Christmas ... Makes you want to look at all your stamps and 'see' other ways of using them.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
